As we are preparing to turn on our ovens for warm baked goods, pull out our scarves, and dig up those snow boots from last year's muddy bin, we are also gearing up to get creative with our indoor workouts.
Here to make it really easy for us is downtown's Cycology Studio.
It is appropriately named, as participants leave feeling rejuvenated, refreshed, seen and nurtured, and quite a bit warmer.
There is a full spectrum of participants; from high schoolers to 60+ year-olds and everything in between. If you have a love for music, want to move your body, and need something refreshing from the inside out, there is a seat calling your name at Cycology. It is a bike-to-the-beat format and hardly feels like a workout—well, at least it goes by quickly!
Cyc is a place where the community has been so deeply cultivated over the course of their five years and it shows itself in sweet ways. Studio Manager Kaylee Leets explains that as they roll into their anniversary this October, everyone involved is so deeply thankful for the love and support received since the beginning, especially during the last year.
"It’s been a tough one for so many local businesses and the Cyc family hasn’t gone without feeling the weight of the year," explains Kaylee.
With a high count of original riders combined with newbies, continued support from Colorado Springs has allowed them the opportunity to become creative with deepened community building. Once a quarter, the studio collaborates with another local business for a ride in a new atmosphere. These events have created a cross-over of other businesses in order to stimulate awareness of great space while feeling healthy. Cyc has a donation ride four times a year to support local nonprofits and they've recently built a scholarship program for students.
So, what can you expect when you go through Cycology's doors for the first time?
Foremost, a positive atmosphere. From the front desk greeting, down the hall to your instructor there is contagious life-giving energy flowing throughout the building. After grabbing riding shoes, your instructor will set you up properly on your bike, your neighbors will cheer you on, and no matter what—it’s a party on a bike.
- If you've never been to spin, Robin's your girl. She books up quickly, so reserve your spot in advance.
- If you ride outside, but haven’t experienced B2TB, take Kari or Jordan's class.
- If you're a pro and up for a challenge, book with Brittany.
The first ride is free for Colorado Springs residents. Private studio rentals are available. Cyc follows all CDC guidelines.
